Welcome to the exciting world of Scalextric Digital. This set allows you to race up to four cars at the same time (three cars are provided), performing amazing, realistic overtaking and braking manoeuvres. You can switch lanes at the touch of a button to overtake or block your opponent. This set includes everything you need to get started with Scalextric Digital--it features a long oval circuit and comes supplied with three Digital Chip installed cars. Additional digital cars are available or you can easily convert most standard cars to run on digital layouts. Also included is the exciting Digital Pit Lane game. Select up to three pit stops per race - the pits will open randomly for five seconds at a time. Enter the pits when open to extinguish one Pit Stop light, but take care, if you enter the pits when they are closed you will receive an extra Pit Stop penalty! Extinguish all pit stop lights first to win the game. The Digital Pit Lane Game is powered from the track. No batteries are required. The three super resistant Porsche 997 cars feature detailed livery designs. The cars feature easy change pick-ups and the Magnatraction system to help them stay on the circuit. Four cars can be raced simultaneously using the powerbase provided in the set or upgrade to the Advanced Six Car Digital Powerbase (C7042) for six car races plus a host of additional features. Digital layouts are fully compatible with standard Scalextric track pieces.

The digital set is excellent because it has the option to have up to four cars all on one or both lanes (on non-digital you are limited to just one car per lane) and the set comes with a pit-lane and pit lane game with working lights and also with a digital lane-change piece that switches like railway track points if you push the button on the hand controller.
This means you can actively chose to pit or to not pit, and if you have two or more lane-change pieces, you can actively 'overtake' slower cars and if you then combine this with a digital lap-counter (available seperately) you can have some pretty serious racing.
Great for New Years get-togethers! Not a child in sight at our family gathering but we all had a hoot and in some respects I actually think 'toys' like this might be more suited to 14+ anyway because little ones might lose interest quite quickly. However, young adults and adults have as much fun planning and building the layout as they do racing. Especially if you then start adding pit garages, grandstands, race control towers, pit-crews and all the extra bits - which incidently will start adding to the overall cost by a far bit.
I would definately recommend this set as it is currently on a very good offer price, but at full price, it will certianly hit you quite hard in the wallet, especially if you want to add all the extras too.Read more ›
3 players, switching lanes, makes all the difference. only thing i would change is the pit lane game, it could do with being better, maybe a lap counter would help.
but still its great fun
Could do with a lap counter.
My 4 year old loves it and soon got the hang of the speed and the lane change.
A whole new dimension to racing...... leave the analogue for the old skoolers.... digital rules !
Unfortunately, this is top of my list of toys that create havoc when there are two or more children playing with it. The squabbles, screams and bad feeling will leave you stunned. Make sure you have the camcorder ready.
In case you're wondering, second on the listing of toys which are more trouble than they're worth are Microbox X-Box Kinect (second) and the game Coppit (third).
Much more exciting than the old system
